Josh Duhamel was kicked off a flight headed from New York City to Kentucky today after refusing to turn off his BlackBerry before takeoff, according to online reports.

After a flight attendant asked the 38-year-old actor to turn off his mobile device, he reportedly laughed and made rude remarks, which prompted the airline staff to take the jet back to the gate, where two officers boarded the plane and removed him.

A rep for the actor said he was texting about his flight being delayed and that he's "sorry" about the incident.
